To say the Giant Bombcast is just about games is to lie, and lie brazenly. Reviews 
on Yelp get analyzed. Italian nationals find themselves being vomited on. Iceland is 
penetrated by an intrepid reporter with hair on his head and face. Pneumatic tubes 
are things that exist. Cake is violated. And where may one find a good, reasonably 
priced grill? Sprinkled between that is talk of games: musings on the Electronic 
Triple, on Divisions, and on racist depictions of Italian plumbers. The death of 
beloved host Ryan Davis put a tremendous damper on the show's proceedings; the 
years of this terrific program— 2013 included— along with the site's other wealth of 
content serve as a testament to his brilliance and his outstanding character. He 
gave us a superb work that still continues: the Giant Bombcast, an eclectic and 
unbeatable grab bag of talk that never fails to entertain.

I think Vinny posted it on his Twitter, but I found it by Googling 
"young Vinny."

I cannot download either part (or any other mp3s). I continued to get 
redirected to: https://ssl- 

Any idea what's going on?

No idea! It seems to be working fine so far as I can tell. Maybe 
try again? Restart your browser?
